Jr. Pac-Man - Atari 7800
I may be young, but I'm no baby!
I'm a star just like my folks, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man. And I've got twice their energy! Come play with me! We'll race around giant playgrounds. We'll chase down magic candy and run from ghostly bullies who'll tickle me to death if they catch me.
My playgrounds are full of challenging mazes with corners and alleys to hide in. I run faster than a speeding roller skate, ducking behind barriers, dodging those mean bullies. I can even race from one side of a playground to the other. That's a lot of ground to cover!
But I've got to play a lot harder than my folks to live up to the Pac-Man family name. That's why this is a whole new game!
Jr. Pac-Man is another classic arcade game faithfully brought to life on the Atari 7800 by programming wizard Bob DeCrescenzo. Jr. Pac-Man follows the popular Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man arcade hits, bringing new features such as a large, side-scrolling maze and bonus items that not only move about the maze but also destroy power pills they come into contact with! Bob DeCrescenzo's 7800 rendition of the game is even complete with the intermissions from the arcade.
This fast-paced, frenetic Pac-Man experience is not to be missed!
Includes cartridge and four-page, full-color manual. Available in NTSC and PAL television formats, please specify above when ordering.

I must say, its about as close as a port of an arcade version of PMJR can get for a system of the day.
I rate this 7800 port of JR with 5 out of 5 stars.
Very well done homebrew.
I look forward to more games in the future.
Jr. Pac-Man is an excellent port of the arcade game. The graphics, including the title screen and intermissions are all faithfully reproduced. The sound is very good, although the 7800's limitations are noticeable. The game plays like the original, and is just as mercilessly hard. Fortunately, there are options available to increase Jr.'s speed and give him more lives, and you more of a chance to survive.
Jr. Pac-Man is a solid addition to the growing library of Pac-franchise titles for the 7800. It may be a bit too difficult for the casual gamer, but die-hard Pac-fans who are looking for a serious challenge should check it out.
